Format: Hardcover
I'm not one to encourage anyone to stay in bed. I personally think it's a sin! However, if you are not a morning person, or work shifts, this book is full of brunch-type recipes. We've all had breakfast type meals throughout the day, so why not enjoy more of them? You'll find hearty recipes that are more than a little American. Cornmeal, maple syrup, cupcakes and more. I do believe in the phrase - breakfast like a King and this book follows that philosophy even if breakfast is late.

Seventy five recipes are featured, so you'll find lots you like. It is not gluten free nor is it meat-free. There are a few non meat recipes, but I think this is primarily a book for meat eaters. There are main dishes, sides and starters and drinks and desserts. Lots of ideas from crepes, cupcakes, coffee with ice cream to bacon baked beans. You'l find great photography throughout and easy to follow recipes. This review first appeared on welovefinefoods website.

Breakfast for Dinner? Oh Yeah! 12 Feb. 2013
By Terri Pena - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Of all the cookbooks that have entered the house in 2013, Breakfast for Dinner by Lindsay Landis & Taylor Hackbarth is my favorite. Oldest Daughter picked up the book, looked at me and asked, "We are going to eat this, right?" She is the only one of my children who do not cook, but she is an adventurous eater. She will have staff.

"Everyone runs around trying to find a place where they still serve breakfast because eating breakfast, even is it's 5 o'clock in the afternoon, is a sign that the day has just begun and good things can still happen."

-Jonathan Goldstein

Breakfast has always been my favorite meal of the day and this book takes all the flavors you love about breakfast and gussies them up for the dinner table.

Habanero-cheddar Bread Pudding
Parmesan Beignets
Breakfast Sausage Ravioli
Chicken & Biscuit Waffles
Greek Baked Eggs
Bacon Fried Rice
Moco Loco

The list goes on and on. SO much goodness. SO much.

A nice hardback book with an embossed cover, loads of photos, helpful ideas, and darn good recipes. The recipes are well written, easy to follow, and do not include hard to find ingredients. Breakfast for Dinner is likely to become one of those books that is pulled off the shelf on a regular basis, full of recipes that were brand new the first time you read the book and then became family favorites.

Easy to read and follow recipes, inspiring photography with every recipe! 18 Feb. 2013
By C. H. Gailey - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The concept of breakfast for dinner is so very appealing, and this book is now in my arsenal of go-to's when I haven't thought much about what to have for dinner, and dinner-time is just an hour away. At the beginning of the book are a list and pictures of ingredients we commonly already have available, and what follows are wonderfully appealing recipes to use them in ways we often haven't, with other ingredients that are readily available at the local grocer.
My ONLY reservations about this book are that, given my need to limit animal fat and wheat in my diet, I have to exercise caution in using these recipes too often. And they are SO tempting! I'm looking at ways of modifying with gluten-free breads, low-fat or veggie versions of meats, etc. All doable where I live, with three health food stores close to hand.

Has the fun gone out of your food? 9 April 2013
By Anna from InannaWorks - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Put it back in by making dinner a homage to breakfast. Husband and wife team Landis and Hackbarth (visit their blog have raised comfort food to a whole new level. With recipes like Steak & Eggs Benedict, Italian-Style Stuffed French Toast, Goat Cheese Monte Cristos, Greek Baked Eggs, Cornmeal Pancakes with Beer-Braised Short Ribs, Pizza Over Easy, Huevos Rancheros Tacos, Breakfast Sausage Ravioli, Parmesan Beignets, Moroccan Chicken Cinnamon Rolls, Donut Fudge Sundaes and Mint Chocolate Chip Pancakes, it's impossible not to want to start cooking immediately.

Despite the highly creative and sophisticated concepts, the recipes are relatively simple, with non-threateningly brief lists of non-exotic ingredients. Advanced techniques, like making your own pasta dough, are few and far between. When they do appear, they are well explained and illustrated. I collect cookbooks. I'm not an easy sell. I love this one. If you purchase it as a gift, buy two copies because it won't be that easy to part with it once you've seen it.

Who doesn't like breakfast for dinner!! 12 Sept. 2013
By Bente Doolan - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I love the cookbook. It is original and most of the recipes are easy to make. My kids love going through the book and picking out their menu for a dinner they love. The combinations of foods put together is delightful. Again, the recipes are easy overall to prepare and many things you can substitute foods in place of others for allergies, such as a milk allergy.
Anyone who does or doesn't have kids, likes new tastes, and love breakfast will love this book

Good idea, well-named and well-photographed book....but forgettable food 9 May 2014
By Jenika - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Bought this book in the clearance section of Anthropologie. Anthro has been the source of a few interesting cookbook discoveries for me in the past (Pure Vanilla, What Katie Ate). I'm a lover of breakfast at all times of day so this concept excited me, and this seemed to not be as obsessed with sugar as many breakfast books are, so I thought I'd give it a try.

Let me preface this by saying I cook every meal from scratch, and I'm not an iron chef but I have experience successfully cooking a wide variety of things. I host people at my house for dinner at least once a week and am constantly looking for new and inventive things to share with friends, as well as just REALLY GOOD food. I don't care how much work is involved or how far I have to hunt down the ingredient if it's worth it in the end.

As I made my meal plan for the week I chose three dishes to try - the egg and chorizo burritos (with the avocado cream sauce - a separate recipe but kind of a sidebar to the burritos), shakshuka, and the ricotta stuffed french toast.

Day One - egg and chorizo burritos with avocado cream sauce. I was thrilled that the recipe seemed pretty healthy (spinach! sweet potato!) with the addition of some tasty standbys (my favorite tortillas! eggs! chorizo! avocado!). But the final result? Meh. It was okay. The kind of thing you'd order at a wannabe fancy restaurant that sits near a tourist location whose only virtue is that it's close by and you're tired. I know that sounds harsh, but that's exactly what went through my mind. The only thing I'll "take away" from this recipe is the idea of cooking a scrambled egg "flat" so it can roll up in the burrito - that was pretty cool, but other than that the flavor just wasn't there, which is a shame because it had such promising ingredients. As for the avocado cream sauce, it was basically just a shadow of bland guacamole; in the future I'd just use fresh avocado and a squeeze of lime juice before rolling up the burrito.

Okay, so maybe it's just that one recipe.

Tonight I tried the Shakshuka, a middle-eastern inspired dish. I've spent time in Tunisia and have cooked dishes not unlike this, so I figured I'd be guaranteed to like this variation - particularly since I was using good feta and fresh parsley from my garden to garnish. The result? Meh. It was okay. Not particularly adventurous. Forgettable. The only redeeming aspect of the meal was the 18-hour bread I'd made to go with it (that recipe is in the New York Times - the No-Knead bread, google it! people think I got it at some fancy bakery but it's really simple and delicious!)

Back to the book. It wasn't so much that either meal wasn't to my taste, it just wasn't that flavorful. And I used flavorful ingredients! It was passable yet not anything I'd share with friends or suggest anyone make. My husband, a fellow lover of good food and a great cook himself, ate without complaining and was courteous to me for my efforts, but I could tell he wasn't particularly excited by either meal. Which is a shame, because we love to get excited about what we eat.

I'm on the fence as to whether or not I'll bother trying the third recipe. If it's as lackluster as the other two, seems like a waste of good ricotta. If I try it and it blows me away, I'll come back and update this review.

I hesitated to write this review because I only actually tried two recipes, but I feel like if you go through an entire book and select two that look awesome, and neither one is actually that great, it doesn't say much about the book. I don't feel like you should need to cook your way through a whole book to locate a few good gems, and plenty of other books have blown me away on the first or second try. So while not bad, it's okay, I would recommend other things before this.
